To My Hero

Dad,

You’re my hero because…

…you’ve gone sledding with Ben and me, which was one of the funnest things ever when we were kids.

…you give me big hugs. 

…you are so patient.

…you are a wicked mathematician, and I wouldn’t have gotten through physics or calculus without you.

…you’ve helped me be more competent.

…you are a faithful servant of God.

…you admit your failures.

…you know what anxiety is like.

…you are tough on me.

…yet you are gentle.

…you’ve taught me how to be a better public speaker.

…you do a lot of housework, including vacuuming, which I don’t enjoy.

…you fight tirelessly for the life of all human beings.

…you learned Spanish by yourself. Nice job, Geraldo!

…you’ve shown me how a man should treat his wife.

…you enjoy food as much as I do.

…you are humble.

I think I was admiring those glasses of yours.

Jokes. I’m always looking up to you, Dad.

Happy Father’s Day, Pop!

Love You, Ma

For all the times I’ve cried on your shoulder

For all the times I needed a hand to hold

For all the times you dealt with my attitude

For all the times you hugged and kissed me

For all the times you prayed for me

For all the times you gave me advice

For all the times you bought things for me

For all the times you wished you could take my place when I was suffering

For all the times you fed me  

For all the times you laughed at my {lame} jokes

For all the times you congratulated me and told me you’re proud of me

For all the times you drove me

For all the times you taught me

For all the times you came to my school and dance events 

For all the times I forgot to say thank you

For all the times you told me you love me… 

….Thank you. I love you, Ma.
